The best of a bad series
19 March 2004 | by See all my reviews

The doctor in a hospital has an alarming number of cat patients who have been driven crazy by Speedy Gonzales. When Speedy comes into the hospital, the doctor turns to Daffy Rentals to help catch him. Daffy brings Herman, his robotic mouse catching machine. However, Speedy is not that easy to catch.

I love Daffy Duck; when he was in his early, crazy period there were no funnier characters - to quote many characters - he was silly, and I liked him! Here Speedy says that line but it is meaningless as Daffy isn't being silly here - he is being greedy and basic. Speedy is his usual bland self but the robot Herman is funny enough to add enough spice to make the rather weak material feel different.

As with all Daffy/Speedy films - this is rubbish! The material is weak here as it often is, but it is still better than the rest of the series! The banter between Daffy and his robot is OK and it covers the gaping humour void that usually exists between Daffy and Speedy. It's not great but it actually made me laugh - which is more than the rest of the series managed put together. The final scene doesn't make a great deal of sense (where's the woman?) but the final line of dialogue is pretty funny!

Overall this is the best Daffy/Speedy film I have seen, but it is important to remember that, comparatively, that means almost nothing!
